Someone who has strong comic-book ties to Kang the Conqueror will appear in the Loki series.
According to Fandango’s Erik Davis, actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw will play a character named Judge Renslayer.
Here are some new images from #Loki to go along with that trailer. That first image is of Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, and the fourth is Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Judge Renslayer. Owen Wilson is playing Mobius. pic.twitter.com/0xiLqObXLQ

The character Ravonna Renslayer has a long history with Kang in the comics. Most notably is the romantic affection that Kang has for Ravonna. And that Ravonna has killed Kang once or twice in the comics.
It isn’t confirmed that this character is Ravonna, but the fact that she’s Judge Renslayer pretty much hints at it. We know that Kang will be the primary villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The reveal of Renslayer significantly increases the chances that he makes his MCU debut in Loki. At the very least, it connects these two projects even more closely.
Is Gugu Ravonna or a descendent? We’ll have to wait to find out! Loki debuts on Disney+ on June 11, 2021.
